The Endless Ocean


The Endless Ocean by Toby Bennett

All oceans are one ocean, water without end and at the heart of it all a secret slumbers, gnawing and waiting, for no secret remains hidden forever. Can two orphans who have never heard of realms beyond their own prevent the destruction that threatens every shore? Only time will tell.

Another underrated past SPFBO semifinalist, very dark story where two siblings are separated. Girl can navigate ships, bad guys want to rip her soul and place it in a boat, brother is kidnapped by other bad guys, eyes removed and replaced with magic orbs. Has a talking lizard.
